    I was in the Secret Santa exchange on the SSF and was lucky enough to be partnered with our friend Flicks. I sent him my 2 favorite forms of late and forgot to take any pictures of my own. (nervous I guess.) But Jens graciously gave me permission to use the photos that he had posted. Well, one thing leads to another and I forgot until I was looking for something else and got reminded that I had not shown them here. So, Here Ya go.

    A chalice done in Red Oak with Cedar swells and veneers on the forks with 10 coats of Tru-Oil.
    The next is a Derringer made of some mystery wood that came from someones trimmings. Linseed bath and waxed to bring out the grain and another bunch of coats of Tru-Oil.

    I kid you not: that one was kindo' hard to give away!:D
    Together a nice pair.

    Flicks, I dunno what I love more- the fine workmanship of those two shooters, or the flag they rest upon. My avatar alone should speak to my thoughts on the war of Northern Aggression...

    The Chalice is a fine example of workmanship but the grain on that Derringer is unreal!

    The Cedar planks that I use to make swells are only 7mm thick. So I laminate two pieces. the "Eye" is a knot in the second piece.
    Thanx for asking!

    Really? The attack on Fort Sumner, the attack on Fort Pickens, the invasion of Kentucky, the attempt to overthrow the government of Missouri, the supression of counter-succession in East Tennessee? Yep, the north sure started it.
